Bona Fide Barn Find: This 1969 Lamborghini Miura P400 S

This time last year, one lucky lad found a neglected Ferrari 308 and Lamborghini Countach 500S in his Grandma’s garage. While we were quick to label it a ‘barn find’ – it was a tad short of the term in its truest sense.

That’s not the case for today’s story, though. This is a full-blown barn find, more specifically, a rediscovered 1969 Lamborghini Miura P400 S. 

The covers were taken off the rare set of wheels by the great-nephew of its owner after being forgotten for a number of years in an actual barn. Purchased in 1974 by Hans Peter Weber from an eccentric collector, the Miura is a classic sports car that helped Italian manufacturer Lamborghini find equal footing with rivals Ferrari and Porsche.

Weber owned the car for over 40 years before his passing in 2015, where it was then forgotten in his brother Karl’s barn until Weber’s great-nephew got curious.

The Lambo is in surprisingly decent nick and still sports the Giallo Flay paintwork with a fading original interior. The car hasn’t been touched and still retains the original engine and all of accompanying documents certifying the authenticity of the car.

The great-nephew has decided to put the car up for auction at RM Sotheby’s later this month, with the flashy Lambo estimated to fetch between AU$1.5 and AU$1.8 million.
